 I've attached a new patch that uses regex and `sanitize_html_class()` to
 filter input. I've also added tests.

 Some interesting things about using `preg_split( '#\s+#', ' pumpkin
 spice ' )` vs `explode()`:
 * `preg_split()` gracefully handles multiple delimiters, like space-space-
 tab-space, that would cause `explode()` to lose its mind.
 * Both will generate extra array elements if the string contains leading
 or trailing spaces. They're empty, so I don't think we have to guard
 against that case.

 The WP reference from Brajesh (thanks again for your comments and
 interest) uses `esc_attr()` to sanitize strings, but it seems like
 `sanitize_html_class()` is the better choice. For example:

 `esc_attr( '%class$name<' )` yields `%class$name<`
 `sanitize_html_class( '%class$name<' )` yields `classname` which seems

 Thanks again for the comments.
